For the second time this season the Tampa Bay Lightning have placed veteran forward Erik Condra on waivers.

The latest move came after he was a healthy scratch for Thursday’s 2-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks. Condra, 30, is currently in the second year of a three-year, $3.75 million contract he signed in free agency to join the team a year ago. So far his time with the Lightning has been a bit of a disappointment.

He has played in just 10 games for the Lightning this season and has yet to record a point.

The Lightning placed him on waivers just before the start of the 2016-17 season. He has spent most of this season playing for the Syracuse Crunch in the American Hockey League where he has recorded 23 points (seven goals, 16 assists) in 24 games.

In 363 career games at the NHL level Condra has 39 goals and 59 assists. Only six of those goals have come as a member of the Lightning over the past two seasons since signing his contract in free agency.
